I think so too, if it would be a new major release we might be a bit more
aggressive here, but for a point release we definitively should avoid
deprecation warnings, that something for next (or next next) major release,
possibly with an automated migration path for existing users (which would
have been a bit to much work to implement and test sanely in the remaining
time for next release)
